Type species

Petalophthalmus liui Wang, 1998  , by present designation.

Etymology

The generic name is a Latinized noun with masculine ending, formed as a condensate of the Ancient Greek adjective ύπηρεΤΙΚός (functional) with the noun ὀφθαλμὸς (eye), underlining the difference from the reduced visual elements in the genus Petalophthalmus  .

Diagnosis

Petalophthalminae  with antennal scale setose all around; eyes with well-developed, functional cornea; anterior margin of carapace with rostrum flanked by a pair of processes; thoracic endopods 5–8 slender, each with more than three segments; flagellum of thoracic exopods 3–8 with 10–14 segments; male

pleopods biramous, female pleopods uniramous or biramous; telson large, subquadrangular, terminal margin truncate without or with distinct mid-terminal emargination, terminal margin with two submedian groups of small teeth, with 7–8 large, toothed spines and 1–2 pairs of long setae, these setae arising from the emargination, if present, otherwise from homologous submedian position.
